On the shortest day of the year, nothing cures the winter blahs like tropical blue water and a deserted beach. CW senior editor Bill Springer relives some fond memories of a charter in Antigua and Barbuda.

A squall is coming but we couldn’t have cared less. Just made the seascape even more dramatic. Bill Springer

Notice anything weird in this shot of our charter boat in English Harbour, Antigua? There’s not a breath of wind. It was kinda crazy being there when the trades had strangely stopped blowing for several days.

I’m convinced that a waterproof camera is a must-have piece of kit for any sailing trip. All the cameras I tested were easy to use and allowed me to take goofy pictures like this one. Bill Springer

We also learned to dive on this trip and I love how nonchalant Caroline is with the regulator coming out of the side of her mouth in this shot. You’d never know that this was our first real, open-water dive. Courtesy of Bill Springer

We spend a fantastic, windless evening anchored behind the reef off Green Island, Antigua. Bill Springer
